WV Trip and KLR in Fredericksburg

Well, it was a short trip over to WV. Got up at 4:00 to head out, but started feeling guilty about not moving ahead fast enough with a fella's bike ('86 Suzuki Madura) that's on the lift. Plus, a simple rear brake fluid change I started yesterday was giving me fits. Turns out that the master cylinder piston was sticking. Fooked with that thing far too long yesterday trying to determine why I couldn't get pedal pressure back. Finally figured out what the issue was today and got it corrected.

DONE!

In the interim......... a customer of mine was looking at a KLR up in Fredericksburg on Craig's List:

Anyone know anything about this bike?? I have no interest in this thing other than passing along relevant info.

TIA

The plastics dont appear to be very pink and that leads me to believe that it was kept inside cause that red goes to a pink shade rather quick from what Ive seen. And Im not sure what Im seeing in the pic but is there a hole in the left side bag? If the price is not firm It seems like it would be worth a test ride to me.

Not much help but at least a bump to the top.

Yeah, I can appreciate that. My GREEN '02 turned to green because it sat out in the sun on my carport, or in the parking lot at work. Weren't no bringing it back.

This was really supposed to have gone on the Richmond (VA) Chatter thread, but miscued the link.

I mentioned that to the person who's looking at it, and to ask. 'Course, I had to explain what a doohickey was.

The bike has some other Eagle Mike stuff on it, so maybe he did get it changed out.
